We'll have a fun time sharing "game plan" ideas for getting and keeping your distractions under control, and finding critical "focused productivity" time every day, leading to both performance but also clarity of mind and purpose. And, this program is now "audience flexed" -- the speaker will poll the audience at the start of the program to find out YOUR biggest distractions, and will customize the content accordingly.
